Picked this up and I’m having trouble decoding the number on the front pad. What do you think? I know it’s a 2 bolt main 327 and I think it was built in ‘65?

There’s a thread on the HAMB covering this.

The engine ID if we say the capital “I” are interpreted as 1’s then we have a decode which says as follows.


Flint, Nov,12 HCH
Suffix code HCH = Passenger, 327, 275hp possibly came with a Holley..
The date stamp is consistent with the Date code on the rear flange K65 = Nov,65
